Teaching Methods

We understand that young boys need to be immersed in hands-on learning experiences which enable them to explore, question, collaborate, think critically, problem solve, communicate and discover new knowledge.

Learning in our Early Learning Community is collaborative, imaginative and creative.

Our balanced approach to teaching and learning in the early learning years is designed to support the inquisitive learning style of boys:

  • Play-based pedagogy is used to engage, motivate and empower boys
  • Explicit intentional teaching is used to focus on literacy, numeracy and investigation skills
  • Our inquiry-based emergent curriculum lays the foundation for children to make sense of future learning concepts in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them.

A comprehensive learning profile is developed for all boys based on observation, assessment and specific screening. Targeted intervention or extension is provided to any boys with identified needs.

Every single boy is supported and challenged at their own level in a safe and nurturing environment.
